WonderCon is nearly here! And by “here,” we mean “practically down the street from the offices so we don’t have to wake up nearly as early to grab a coffee before the doors open.” This year, one of the biggest venues for comics, entertainment, cosplay, and all things geeky hits the LA Convention Center for the first time and we will be there along with our sister site, Nerdist, to give the convention a warm Los Angeles welcome.
Come down to the Legendary Digital Networks booth to meet and greet some of the great people you know and love from the Geek & Sundry family, along with some of our friends. Swing by our booth for a chance to roll the die and win a Geek & Sundry role-playing class pin or any of our other wonderful items if you manage to get a crit. Head on over to Booth #1631 to check out all the fun!
Check below for all the Geek & Sundry and Nerdist events happening around WonderCon, like a Critical Role Q&A session, a live reading by Drama Club Heroes, and signings at our booth. There will be something different every day so make sure you check out the schedule below so you do not miss a single event.
Come by the booth to win some swag, pick up some of your favorite t-shirts, or simply say “hello.” We hope to see you there!

9:00pm – 10:00pm Nerdist TV: Why Genre Has No Chill — Let’s be real: TV is killing it right now when it comes to storytelling. But in the era of Peak TV, genre series are arguably having the biggest moment of all. From Game of Thrones to Orphan Black, Rick and Morty, The 100 and more, the lens with which we dissect societal issues has always been most effective when removed enough from reality to see it for what it is. Join Nerdist Managing Editor Alicia Lutes and her panel of guests as they discuss why the most progressive stories are taking place in our favorite shows, and why we can’t help but fan out about it. Room 515A
